23XI Racing has reportedly expressed serious confidence for Bubba Wallace moving forward.

While Wallace is already set to return for the 2023 season, the racing team is reportedly close to a contract extension for their No. 23 driver.

Wallace has confirmed that the contract extension talks are far along.

"We've been working on it for a while; that's all coming together really nice. Hopefully we'll have something to announce here soon."

Wallace has had an up-and-down 2022 season, as he's struggled at times due to pit crew issues.

However, it's clear that Michael Jordan and Co. are very confident in Wallace moving forward.
